Calls for Deontay Wilder to be banned forever after sick comments

Deontay Wilder should be banned from the sport of boxing for his sick comments according to the partner of tragic Mike Towell.

Towell suffered bleeding on his brain after a fight with Dale Evans in 2016 and later died from his injuries.

Wilder, meanwhile, has repeatedly said he wants "a body on his record" and repeated his claim before his first-round KO of Dominic Breazeale on Saturday.

And ahead of his latest title defence, he said: "This is the only sport in the world where you can kill a man and get paid for it at the same time, so why not use my right to do so?"

But Chloe Ross, Towell's partner, believes the American should not be allowed to fight again.

"Wow I can’t believe what I've just listened to," she wrote on Twitter .

"What a horrible human being… an absolute extreme crave for publicity and he's got exactly that… he shouldn't be allowed to fight ever again, a***hole!!!"

Wilder knocked Breazeale out in under two minutes in Brooklyn and insisted he did not mean his opponent any harm.

He said: "Everything came out of me tonight. I know it's been a big build-up a lot of animosity and hatred; a lot of words were said and it came out tonight.

"This is what makes boxing so great. I told him I love him and of course I wanted him to go home to his family.

"When you settle your differences with the gloves on that’s what the sport is about."

Wilder will face a hearing with the WBC whose heavyweight belt he holds.

The organisation's president Mauricio Sulaiman said: "I have seen Deontay Wilder comments which are regrettable and completely against the spirit of our sport.

"I have known Wilder for a long time and he is not the person he portrays in such comments. His metaphors are against the WBC code of ethics and will be addressed in a hearing."
